After the lukewarm reception their lead single, “Saturday” got a few months ago, Simple Plan has returned with another new song from their highly anticipated fifth studio album. The new song is titled “Boom” and is the first official music video for their yet-to-be-titled impending record. The music video features the band performing the track in what look like a studio. In between the shots of their studio performance, there are clips of the band performing at this year’s Vans Warped Tour.
The best part of the music video has to be all the guest cameos from the Canadian group’s friends which includes members of many bands that we like such as All-Time Low, New Found Glory, PVRIS, MXPX, Pierce the Veil, The Summer Set, Silverstein, Black Veil Brides, Parkway Drive, and Issues.
According to a statement from the band, the music video was filmed back in July during the Alternative Press Music Awards. Check out the video for “Boom” below and take a tally of how many band members you see throughout the over three-minute clip.
Simple Plan’s new album, which has been given the nickname #SPAlbum5 for the time being, was rumored to be released by the end of the year. Sadly, the band has revealed that they are still working on the record, but that they “will be playing [you] some more songs very soon! We will also give you more info on release date and pre-ordering, so keep checking back our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages @SimplePlan!”
For those who are digging “Boom,” the song is currently available for purchase on iTunes. This weekend, the band will be heading across the pond to the United Kingdom with a couple of the bands who made cameos in “Boom” for their performances at Reading and Leeds.
